When you compare this projection with the steady cloud adoption rate we’ve seen over the past decade, it becomes obvious that the cloud is the next evolution of business computing. As exciting as this is, it’s important to adopt the cloud with a degree of caution.

Which Cloud Offering is the Best? For Many SMBs, It’s the Public Cloud

Which Cloud Offering is the Best? For Many SMBs, It’s the Public Cloud

Cloud computing gives businesses plenty of choices for how they want their assets managed. There are three different types of clouds: public, private, or hybrid. Some businesses have found that the public cloud is their preferred way of handling the management of their critical systems. We’ll investigate some of the finer details so that you can decide on the solution which suits your business best.


Here are three reasons why small businesses might prefer the public cloud over the other options.

The Cloud is Easy to Use
When your business hosts data in-house, you’re the one responsible for its upkeep and maintenance. Any major changes to your infrastructure would be your responsibility as well, which effectively means that any and all changes would have to be managed or supervised by either yourself or your internal IT department. Alternatively, utilizing the public cloud is easier and less time-consuming for your hosting needs. The public cloud makes it easy to make changes to your infrastructure, like adding new users or scaling up your resources. Just put in a support request to your cloud provider and you’re all set.

It should also be pointed out that it is possible to make use of a private cloud platform without having to manage every detail yourself. By outsourcing the responsibility of managing your private cloud to a managed service provider like Computerware, you can still enjoy the benefits of hosting your data in-house, as well as take advantage of Computerware’s infrastructure for your own use.

The Public Cloud is Secure Enough
One main point for you to take away here is that going through a public cloud provider gives you the opportunity to spend less on security while achieving a similar result to that of a private solution. While using a private cloud solution allows you to augment your cloud security with secondary solutions, we want you to remember that the public cloud is also a relatively secure experience. Public cloud providers have security experts which, if you’re a small business owner, can be preferable to hosting and managing your own in-house private cloud solution, as well as paying for full-time on-site IT technicians.

Still, even if the public cloud can provide passable security, you may require more. You should know that the best way to protect a company’s data is through a private cloud hosted internally, seeing as the private cloud allows you to implement external security features.

Less Focus on Technology Maintenance
If you don’t have the time or resources to maintain your cloud solution, you should at least be able to devote this time to managing your business’s operations. This is yet another main attraction of the public cloud. You’ll be able to spend less time managing your cloud solution, and more time on what matters most. A public cloud hosts your data on a service provider’s server, which handles the brunt of the work for you. Still, if you want to use a private cloud solution, Computerware can emulate the public cloud experience. We’ll focus on providing you with the best solution possible, while you focus on keeping your business functional.

Notice a pattern? Computerware can effectively help your business take advantage of the private cloud without any of the work. To learn more, reach out to us at (703) 821-8200.
